Hellblade Launches With a Documentary About Portraying Mental Illness

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice has been on our radar for months thanks to Ninja Theory’s development diaries and interviews about the game’s portrayal of psychosis and voice hearing. Today, it launches on PC and PS4, and we’re looking forward to seeing the results of their efforts. We’ll also see a lot more about those efforts, too, as Hellblade includes a 25-minute feature on the studio’s work to portray Senua’s mental health issues responsibly.

You can check out the trailer above for a sneak peek. If you’ve already purchased Hellblade, you’ll find the feature in the game’s menu. It includes spoilers, so you may want to wait to watch until after you’ve played.
